First Impressions Review: AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. My opinions are honest and my own.

I was so jazzed when I got picked to test The AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream because I love face creams and AVEENO is an awesome brand.

From the box it says...Brighten tired and dull-looking skin with Positively Radiant.  Positively Radiant is a collection of facial skincare products uniquely formulated to target all 5 Factors of Radiance to leave your skin looking fresh,awake,and luminous.  Intensive Night Cream improves: tone,dullness,brown spots,texture and blotchiness.

 I received this on 4/12/13, so I got it yesterday.  When I saw the little Influenster box in my mailbox I did a little happy dance...that I immediately regretted because I hurt my back.  First thing I did was instagram the box because I wanted everyone to see it right away. The packaging looks very nice, I think it looks quite elegant.

The second thing I did was open the jar and sniff because I am sensitive to smells because of my asthma.  Holy cow does it smell amazing.  It's not to strong or too light, just the perfect amount of fragrance for a face cream. It smells so clean and fresh.

I was so antsy all day yesterday in anticipation of getting to use the product that at 11 on the dot I took a before picture then rushed into the bathroom for my nightly routine.

A tip I would recommend is using a gentle exfoliating scrub before using the night cream to get rid of dead skin so the AVEENO can soak in properly.  Always use your night cream on a clean face.

After I used my warming exfoliating scrub I slathered the AVEENO on my face and neck, and I mean slathered like butter on a turkey.  After a moment it started to burn/tingle a little.  It didn't hurt but it wasn't entirely pleasant either.  I figured I exfoliated a little too hard so I wiped the product off and occupied myself for a little bit before trying again.

I wiped my face again to make sure it was clean and then applied the night cream.  Once again it burned/tingled a bit so I just figured it was because of the ingredients working but since my skin is so sensitive the feeling was a little more intense than a normal person might feel.

When I woke up this morning I was going to take a picture right away before my shower but I had those lines you get from sleeping on your hands so I had to wait a bit.  But as soon as those lines faded I could tell my skin already looked better! A little tingle is definitely worth these results, especially if after one day it already looks that good.
Already you can tell that my tone is more even, and my skin is brighter.

So my first impression about AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream is that I am in love with it and definitely can't wait to see how it improves my skin with continued use. I highly recommend this if you need to improve tone,dullness,brown spots,texture, or blotchiness in your face.

I hope I didn't ramble too much. Keep watch on my Youtube channel here to see a video of me using my AVEENO.

Have a good day everybody!

  4. Great review!! Aveeno makes the best lotion. It's the only thing I use on my hands. I love the baby lotion too!!

  5. I'm guessing that the tingling is either alpha Hydroxy acids or retinal. What's in it? I'm always looking for something that works. Great review & good photos!
